Delicate leaves of silvery white form compact carpets of foliage, bringing light to the forgotten spaces under trees and shrubs, at the front of a shaded border, or in the shadowy corners of the landscape.

Thrives in moist soil or drier areas of the landscape. Easy to grow and hardy. Best in full to part shade. Zones 3-8.
